After six years in Pittsburgh, I have had more than enough rain for the rest of my life.
I now live in lovely California. The sunny side of the bay to be precise. But it still does rain here occasionally. Like the last 2 weeks. Lots and lots and lots of rain. We needed the rain pretty badly but wow, those were some serious storms last week.
This mix is the perfect soundtrack for those rainy days when you’re stuck inside and all you wanna do is curl back up in your bed and pull the covers over your head.
